    Hi guys, I have a 2016 330d and thoroughly enjoying driving it. Unfortunately idrive is the NBT EVO ID4 model as opposed to the newer variant, but hey.. can't have everything. Due to Spotify being so crap over Bluetooth in the sense that it is only possible to flick between previous and next...

    Hi, Is there a way of using the standard radios bluetooth to stream music from my phone or do I need to either; A) fit a USB cable to the phone and access it as a USB device. or B) buy some extra bit to act as an intermediary device/Bluetooth thingy between the phone and the radio. As far...

    Hi all, first post so please move as necessary! I can connect my iPhone 8 to my 1 series via Bluetooth fine and it plays music no issue. But I can’t use either the steering wheel control or the other central control to change songs or skip so I either have to use voice command or my phone to...

    Has anyone here tried to use an SSD as an external music source on a professional iDrive? Just wondered if it'd work. Also what's the largest capacity USB key that you've tried? This is on an E61, not that that matters too much. It's the fact that it's the Professional iDrive that matters most I...

    I currently have a 118d 64plate. Everything about the car I love..... BUT! When playing music through Spotify whilst connected to Bluetooth, the music seems dubbed down, and the bass is shocking. When I select the radio, the quality is perfect.. I have tried the AUX and this is the same quality...

    Something must have changed here, but I'm not sure what. Car is a 2017 4 series with pro nav. Phone is a Samsung S8 plus, connected via blue tooth. The music I'm listening to is Spotify via Bluetooth. Everything has been fine and dandy in the past, however suddenly yesterday when receiving a...

    Hello help needed, my second BMW,(wish I stuck to my trusty 320i ) just bought a 1 series 63 plate and it has now developed a whopping banging noise coming from speaker areas when playing music. This noise is intermittent and you can’t predict when it’s going to happen. Dealers can’t pinpoint...

I've plugged my iphone into the iphone cable (i have an...
